FERMAPOR® K31 FLAME PROTECTION

...low flammability foam seals for indoor and outdoor use

 

The FERMAPOR® K31 foam seals with flame protection fulfil the highest US fire safety prescriptions according to UL 94 HF-1 by the independent organisation Underwriter Laboratories. This means that foam seals with flame protection are self-extinguishing when exposed to flame. Burning sealing material, which could still cause a fire, does not drip off; the fire goes out.

The low flammability FERMAPOR® K31 foam seals are used both indoors and out, where the strict US fire protection stipulations for

the sealing of metal switch cabinets and electronics housing are in force.

FERMAPOR® K31 polyurethane foam seals with flame protection are also of use in many other situations, for example, in the automotive, household appliances, lighting and packaging industries, where strict flame protection is also prescribed.
